I'm new to Brad Meltzer's writing style, which took some getting used to, but the stories in the Culper Ring series are interesting. The only thing I didn't love about the audio book was the narrator's style. The reading speed was really slow and a little quirky. There were also a couple places in the middle/end of the book where some of the words cut out on the audio. Luckily, I also bought the Kindle book and could read along with the audio to catch the words I missed.
Brad Meltzer is good at the slow reveal, keeping you interested until you find out who "dunnit". Sometimes the premise of the Culper Ring series feels a little too "cute" / contrived but I am enjoying the stories nonetheless.
Odd, slow, quirky
Buy the next book in the series.
If you enjoyed the first book in the series you will definitely enjoy the continuation of this series, there were some twists and turns that took me and my husband by surprise ,
I'm looking forward to listening to the last book in the series and hoping it will get better Scott brick as always was a fantastic narrator,
Scott Brick is a masterful narrator. He brings every story alive. Meltzer again tells a contemporary saga against the backdrop of history. Beautifully done.
As a pastor myself, I commend Brad for presenting clergy as we are: humans, nothing more, nothing less. "But for the grace of God go I."
If you haven't read/listened to The Inner Circle go back and at least skim through it to get a recessed. The character details were hard to remember since it had been several months for myself. The story line was overall very good, which really the only down side was the similarities to the first book.
I enjoyed the previous book and hoped for another engaging story. This was a very long, tedious rehash with a bit of history mixed in. Hoping for better from this author.
I skipped a lot about Wisconsin. He would get a suspenseful storyline and poof! goes back in time that was boring. I didn't get the connection until the end. when I did, my thought was "so what?"
Scott Brick again saved the book. He could narrate the dictionary and I'd buy it.
